"Sánchez justifies the dinner of the Basque PSOE leader with Otegi, what a shame, Spain deserves a president who defends the dignity of the victims and does not try to clean up the image of terrorists," Rivera wrote on Twitter.
The chief executive and secretary general of the PSOE has said at a press conference that he sees "no element for the controversy" and has placed in the usual Christmas photos the image between Mendia and Otegi, along with other Basque politicians, published by ' The Basque newspaper.
THE SON OF FERNANDO MÚGICA GOES OUT OF THE PSOE
Rivera already referred to that photograph on Thursday after learning that José María Múgica, son of Fernando Múgica Herzog, a lawyer and socialist leader assassinated by ETA in 1996 in San Sebastián, had requested his resignation as a member of the PSOE for disagreeing with Mendia. I have posed with Otegi.
The president of Cs said that the phrase "not in my name", with which José María Múgica explains his decision in a letter, shows the "dignity" of Fernando Múgica's son "against the 'all is worth for power' of Sánchez "
Rivera has reiterated on Twitter that "more and more citizens reject the alliance of sanchismo with all those who want to liquidate Spain" – in reference to the pro-independence and nationalist parties – and has once again demanded that it call for general elections.
